Quick Overview

The original. The one that started it all. Noise Rock. Industrial Rock. Underground for years ''Metal Machine Music'' survived on the power of an idea. No key, no vocals and no set rhythm….hhhmmmm feedback forever. Supervised by Lou Reed and faithfully remastered to the last squeal. The out of print ''Quad'' vinyl has been replicated-creating the perfect vinyl version playable on your stereo turntable.


seeringly beautiful electro-acoustic composition for electric guitar and an array of "consumer-priced" sound-processing devices and amplifiers used by most bands of the mid-70's...inspired by La Monte Young's Dream Music installations, this one-time spontaneous production of Reed's pre-dated a great deal of rock-sound inspired new music (Branca, Chatham etc.) ...feedback and a lot of the Keith Richards-effect (maximum volume through small speakers) which lends a feeling of infinite universal and atomic surface compression permeating everything ..."Passion-realism was the key" is the significant line from the otherwise rather posed liner notes...sudden silences leave the listener floating
